Hello, my name is Kayleen Mercer. Creator of Kayleen's Creatives. I recently graduated from Iowa State University in the Spring of 2022, where I double-majored in Graphic Design and Advertising. Currently, I am an Assistant Graphic Designer at Coram Deo Bible Church located in Davenport, IA. I am interested in brand identity, publication design, marketing/advertising, and packaging/product design. I love the creative process because it can result in many different possibilities.
In my free time, you will probably find me seeking out new vintage cameras to collect, documenting Iowa's beautiful scenery on film, running, walking, and hiking in the outdoors, reading my Bible, taking silly photos of my cat or even doing watercolor painting.
My faith is one of my biggest influences in life, and I'm excited to see what God has in store for me. I hope that through Him, I can help those facilitate their goals in the best possible way through design. I love helping others show their creativity and the call to create. Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions or want to chat! I'm always down to chat about film photography!
